I saw a lot of lookers but no replies so I figured I'd chime in ....

I have never used Frantz brand but I have used Mann filters and I have had good luck with them.

I know its not about Frantz but I'm not sure where I would even get them without searching ....

I tend to buy stuff From ID parts ....

Personally I wont change oil system filter setup unless it's mandatory for a custom build. Just stick with a high pleat count filter. Porulator. Mobile one. Mann. Are all great imo worth getting. Can you provide a link to what your using or thinking of using?

Frantz filter is a bypass oil filter consisting of a roll of toilet paper that is in their unit.

Well if it is good enough for one's butt hole, then it certainly is good enough for their crankcase, right?

Why buy that slimy aloe infused tp when you can make your own and filter oil at the same time?

I had another brand, but the toilet paper roll comparison is only appearance. I'll try to find the brand I used but it was resulting from government study to reduce maintenance costs. They used a kiln dried replaceable media in a form that looks like a small TP roll.

It worked well enough that my BEW had clean looking oil, even after a few thousand miles. The oil looked like a gasser when changed, not that jet black soot of diesel oil. The filter is actually intended to replace regular spin on filter. Kinda like replacing a Fram with a Ams Oil or K&N.

EDIT: found it - trasko oil filters
